Butter-butts

These Yellow Rumped warblers were feeding in a head row of Staghorn Sumac.

Your bird shots are terrific Steve. What lens are you using? I am going to have to do some birding this summer.

Fantastic close up shots, no wondering what kind of birds these are.

Joan, I pack two lenses. 18mm-200mm and 70mm-300mm.

Thanks John, although Yellow Rumped Warblers are very common, they are always fun to have around.

Thanks Steve. I also have a 300mm. I guess since my interests have changed to bugs, I just don't take the time to photograph birds anymore. I am going to make e special effort this summer.

Joan, I'm impressed with your macro work. My lenses are really not set up to do true macro. Perhaps next Spring, I'll see what I can do about that.

Oh...I am longing to see these yellow-rumps close and personal like this - that second shot is just a perfect pose!
